Hiking into the hills of Hong Kong for a weekend picnic, Siu Ming and his parents suddenly find their path blocked by a forest fire. Can the mountain dragon help? Or is the mythical creature equally at risk from the actions of careless human beings?
With original painted art, and a cut-out dragon for children to make themselves, The Dragon’s Back sends a gentle message of environmental responsibility.
Author/illustrator Thea Whittington lives in Hong Kong and can often be found hiking in the hills of the island.
